The borough council voted to make Levy the new chief pending a background investigation, according to the article.
Levy, who has worked for Upper Moreland Police for 35 years, is required to retire by year's end under the police department's Deferred Retirement Option Plan, Murphy told Patch.
"Lt Levy has not submitted his resignation nor has he provided a date, but I would expect sometime mid-October for his departure," Murphy said. "I hope to fill his position sometime this fall but will appoint a sergeant from within the department as an acting lieutenant if necessary."
Sometime this year, the department will also lose another long-time police officer as Lt. Carl Robinson, a veteran of 45 years, retires under the Deferred Retirement Option Plan, according to Murphy.
